are confidential under section f1.110b are not, in fact, covered by that section. although she underlined the operative description of the confidential documents, the word "communications" or any word that would describe an email is missing. under the constitutional requirements for public access, these statutes must be read narrowly. thus, the description of what is confidential can't be expanded to cover communications; which are a completely animal in the investigative file, which was the subject of my complaint. those should also be disclosable, unless otherwise exempt and once an investigation is closed i maintain it becomes a public record and the entire file needs to be released. this commission should ask for an explanation from mr. st. croix about why he forget that these emails were in the file. you should have been made aware of that, at least by last october 22nd. and it took miss herrick, in my humble opinion, the wrong jurisdiction to arrive at that conclusion for you. so i am encouraging you to release those emails. it's your ethical duty to do so and it's not your ethical

something and you can honor confidentiality, but you don't have to get into this ridiculous secrecy where nothing can be revealed. because that feels like you are doing something wrong. thank you. >> good afternoon, thank you. i think it's very important to say a few words in support of mr. menat shaw on this issue. and the memo, the two memos, one from your staff and the one from the outside attorney are regrettably ambiguous. mr. menat shaw is quite right to point out that unless something is specifically exempt, it's by definition "a public record," period and it's a public record and disclosable unless it can be withheld under one of the specific sections of the state law. and if you look at the two charter sections that have been quoted, both of them are set out within the scope of the applicable state law. now the memo before you says that we're not exempt from disclosure, but may be disclosed. well, a determination that they may be disclosed means that they were public records and your obligation is to disclose them. now i can't help, but observe, because it's come up so many ti

records of the commission that are pertinent to an investigation are confidential under charter section c3-699.13. however, miss herrick identified three pages' of emails that don't fall into either of those categories, in her opinion. and are therefore subject to disclosure. this is obviously a complicated analysis looking at state law, the charter, and the sunshine ordinance. in this case i believe the sunshine ordinance is trumped by these two charter provisions that make certain records confidential and to the extent what that they are confidential, they are confidential under evidence code second, 1040 and not subject to disclosure. again to the extent that these three pages don't fall into those categories, i believe they are subject to disclosure in a redacted fashion. >> that is not what the sotf ruled >> mr. shaw, please. you had your opportunity to speak. mr. pilpel you may continue. mr. shaw, please give mr. pilpel a chance to speak. thank you. >> so to conclude, i believe that those three pages should be provided. neither memo discusses what the staff's rationale

the sunshine ordinance is trumped by these two charter provisions that make certain records confidential and to the extent what that they are confidential, they are confidential under evidence code second, 1040 and not subject to disclosure. again to the extent that these three pages don't fall into those categories, i believe they are subject to disclosure in a redacted fashion. >> that is not what the sotf ruled >> mr. shaw, please. you had your opportunity to speak. mr. pilpel you may continue. mr. shaw, please give mr. pilpel a chance to speak. thank you. >> so to conclude, i believe that those three pages should be provided. neither memo discusses what the staff's rationale for non-disclosure at the time of the original request was. that may be something that is worth discussing. so i think it goes to the question of whether there was a willful violation or a different sort of matter? i believe mr. menat shaw is free to make a request at any time, particularly now that he believes that the matter is concluded and to the extent that there are records available post a concluded i

to be saying here, if you redact the confidential portions, i.e., the portions that relate to the investigation, the fact of the internal communication could be disclosable. again, i think i shared my view we should follow miss herrick's recommendation to produce the redacted document. with respect to whether this is a willful violation of the sunshine ordinance, i do not think it is. and the reason is as follows: this was part of the file. it's been heavily redacted as a result of containing confidential information that is protected. and i think it was right to withhold the document. mr. givner, what is our ability and/or our requirements with respect to redacting and producing documents? >> point of order. >> that would be otherwise-- >> through the chair, point of order, i could have sworn that the agenda for tonight said you would arrive at making one decision before you began evaluating whether it's willful. so before reaching your first step appears ethically wrong. >> mr. met shaw, please sit down. mr. givner. >> so your question? >> are we obligated to produce confidential docu

by the charter and state law and there is good reason for confidentialitis, i think as i set at the last meeting. we need to protect whistle-blowers and need to protect people who talk to commission investigators and controller's investigators, in order to try to make this system work. so i don't think i'm alone in that. >> next item on the agenda is discussion and possible action on the ethics commission budget. >> mr. st. croix, would you like to introduce this matter? >> so the numbers break down as before you in the memo. we have been asked in the past several budget years due to difficulties with city budget to make cuts so substantial that would prove damaging to the commission's commission. this year, although budget news is good, it's not fantastic and the mayor's office is requesting what seems to be very minor cuts for the next two fiscal years. approximately $34,000 each of those years from us. our prior custom has been to respectfully request that our budget not be cut, but not ask for increases so that we maintain our independence as an independent agency in making these decisio

any investigation? one way to find out is to request documents. the documents are not confidential. it's the information that is confidential. for example, if you request information about an fbi investigation, they might send you documents that are completely black with nothing except black on it. but you know that there is a document; that something was done. so if we ask for something, a document or some information, you could still give the public a document and hold onto the information. that way we know that something was done on paper, but that we can't have the information. thank you. >> commissioners, ray hart, director of san francisco open government. i think it's kind of circular reasoning or some sort -- i don't know how to describe it -- to say that because it took us two years to get to this point, it obviously wasn't willful because it was complicated. the law says you have a certain period of time to produce documents or explain why you are withholding them. period. it doesn't say oh, well you got a couple of years to sort of toss it around and decide whether you
